  • The Dirty Dem Dogs of Disruption

    Here come the hyper-partisan hounds. A new nonprofit called American Oversight launched this week to combat President Trump's "culture of impunity." The outfit declared itself "nonpartisan" and claims its crusaders will fight for a "transparent and ethical government." But like Waylon Jennings once crooned, "Baby, that dog won't hunt." These Democrat operatives aren't interested in accountability. Their mission is to attack, obstruct and destroy their political opponents at all costs. Executive Director and Obama donor Austin Evers is certainly familiar with the "culture of impunity." He worked as a lawyer at Williams and Connolly -- the firm representing Hillary Clinton...

    White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was harassed at an Apple store over the weekend by a woman who also claims to have organized the group that blocked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from visiting a Washington, D.C., public school. Shree Chauhan used Periscope to broadcast her bizarre interaction with the press secretary live. She opened by asking him how it feels "to work for a fascist" and goes on to ask him whether he is a "criminal" who has "committed treason." "What can you tell me about Russia?" Chauhan asks Spicer, who ignored her. "How do you feel about destroying...

    As an Academy Award-winning producer and a political conservative, Gerald Molen has worked in the entertainment business long enough to remember when being openly Republican in Hollywood was no big deal. “In the ’90s, it was never really an issue that I had to hide. I was always forthright,” recalled the producer, whose credits include “Schindler’s List” and two “Jurassic Park” movies. “It used to be we could have a conversation with two opposing points of view and it would be amiable. At the end, we still walked away and had lunch together.” Those days are largely gone, he said....

    With AW17 fashion season in full swing, it seems near impossible to avoid the subject of politics when discussing the runway shows and presentations. In a lot of ways it makes sense — with Brexit and the Trump presidency throwing the world into increased political turmoil, designers expressing their protest at our current political climate and taking a stand for what they believe in should, in theory, be a positive. However, with many houses expressing a new-found ‘wokeness’ comes an increased responsibility to practice what they preach, and it’s here that many of our beloved brands fall short. During New...

    The Agemeiner ^ | March 10, 2017 | Ruthie Blum, managing editor
    If you’re not an American millennial or university professor, you might be confused by the concept of “intersectionality.” First coined in 1989 by race theorist Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, it has become a left-wing buzzword to define the lumping together of all self-described “oppressed” groups under a single umbrella. According to proponents of this radical fad — which amounts to an elimination of independent critical thought — not only must a person toe a particular ideological line, but he may never slip, even accidentally, into the realm of nuance or distinction. Someone who supports gay marriage, for example, has to oppose...

    PERHAPS it's an offshoot of social media culture, but too many people seem to think decibel level and extremism substitute for facts and logic. We recently criticized some vaccine opponents who attacked a state senator by comparing him to Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot and Kim Jong Un. Such tactics are disturbing enough when made anonymously and at a distance. It's far worse when an elected official embraces the same ploy in public.

    It was an altogether fitting, albeit pathetic, picture. Shortly before Donald Trump delivered the greatest speech of his life, a speech some pundits called historic in its own right, Rosie O'Donnell “addressed a rain-soaked crowd outside the White House . . . during the ‘Resistance Address,’ an event countering President Trump's speech to a joint session of Congress later that evening. She criticized Trump on his foreign policy, stance towards race, and women's rights, while urging the 100 or so gathered to resist Trump (and the weather) through the night” (my emphasis).And so, as Trump spoke to tens of...

    Sometimes a speech is just a speech. And sometimes it heralds the prospect of a great national revival. Donald Trump gave the best speech of his short political life last night, and it had nothing to do with grand oratory. He was thoroughly presidential, speaking plainly and yet masterfully in projecting an optimistic vision of the America he aims to build. It is a vision so optimistic and encompassing that even steaming Democrats had to join boisterous Republicans in the applause at times. Anything you could possibly want, he served it up in a feast of ideas and promises. Trump...

    The invite list by Democrat members of Congress reads like yet another staged protest like so many in recent years that resulted in costly mayhem and damage. This time, though, it won’t be a protest on city streets, but rather within the halls of Congress itself as President Donald Trump takes center stage to lay out his year one agenda for the nation to the legislators responsible for turning that agenda into law. Both Democrats and the Establishment Media see it as yet another opportunity to try and challenge and embarrass the president. The anti-president mood will be unprecedented. Remarkable...

    he current controversy over the immigration policies of President Donald Trump prompted me to engage in some rather deep thinking and introspection vis-ŕ-vis the issue of immigration. In context, of course, this means illegal immigration and border control and the effects thereof in recent decades, which obviously played a significant part in Mr. Trump’s election. When I was a young man, I actually thought I might be something of a racist, and quite honestly, I didn’t have a problem with that. Leaving aside certain popular fallacious definitions of racism (such as the notion that nonwhites can’t effectively be racists since...

    Universities are the cradle of free speech, where ideologies and ideas clash, where academics and activists can agree, disagree, or be disagreeable. This is particularly true in the United States, where the First Amendment zealously guards against government surveillance and intrusion into free speech. Yet at hundreds of campuses across the country, administrators encourage students to report one another, or their professors, for speech protected by the First Amendment, or even mere political disagreements. The so-called "Bias Response Teams" reviewing these (often anonymous) reports typically include police officers, student conduct administrators and public relations staff who scrutinize the speech of...
  • The Left: False Premises and Suicidal Actions

    When Trump won the last election by running circles around the media-political complex, fifty million liberals went stark raving mad, and they haven't come down yet. You always pay a price for living in a world of lies. ​Germany's ​Angela Merkel, a bona fide leftocrat, tells us that Muslim hate propaganda and violence have nothing to do with Islam. Apparently she hasn't read the Qur'an lately, or she believes that the Crusades (which ended in the 12th century) show how violent Christianity really is. But being stuck in ​self-delusion won't solve the threat of jihad, and Mutti Merkel is now...

    America seems to be in big trouble. Not only are there demonstrations that at times turn violent and destructive, differences are impacting families and friendships that previously have weathered many divisive elections. It may not yet be a red vs blue civil war, but anger is real. Disagreement has given way to distance and heated dissension. Daniel J. Boorstin, the University of Chicago American historian, wrote: “Disagreement produces debate but dissent produces dissension. Dissent (which come from the Latin, ‘dis’ and ‘sentire’) means originally to ‘feel apart from others.’ People who disagree have an argument, but people who dissent have...
  • Left without Conviction: Psychodynamics of Trump-Triggered Rage Decompensation

    American Thinker ^ | February 19, 2017 | Deborah C. Tyler
    Psychological decompensation refers to the loss of mental stability and self-control due to the failure of overtaxed coping mechanisms to handle stress. The term decompensation is typically applied to breakdowns in individuals who are psychologically fragile in the first place. For minds burdened with a fallacious self-image, unrealistic life expectations, or a distorted view of reality, heightened stress overwhelms the already brittle ego defenses, and raw psychic pain and rage flows unrestrained. The election of President Trump has triggered a rage decompensation across the left wing, causing disgusting, dehumanizing, and violent expression to break out. The categories of left-wing caterwauling...

They  capitulated to Sharia, knowing full well that they had no choice but to surrender in Iran or else face whatever consequences may have...

    Today, February 14, is Valentine’s Day, the sacred day that intimate companions mark to celebrate their love and affection for one another. If you’re thinking about making a study of how couples celebrate this day, the Muslim world and the milieus of the radical Left are not the places you should be spending your time. Indeed, it’s pretty hard to outdo Islamists and “progressives” when it comes to the hatred of Valentine’s Day. And this hatred is precisely the territory on which the contemporary romance between the Left and Islamic Supremacism is formed. The train is never late: every year...

    Something new is happening before our eyes. Radicals are completing a takeover of the Democratic Party. Sure, there’s been a lot of mockery among conservatives about hyperventilating Democrats. Pundits point out the obvious: that Democrats screaming that Trump is illegitimate deliver no positive message for working class voters who want jobs and that mobs in black masks are not appealing. Such analyses fall short. After 8 years of exploiting and enflaming the grievances of identity politics, the Democratic Party is being eaten by the monster they rode to power.

    Milo's event was cancelled, and he is off the property. They have toppled barricades, smashed windows, a big fire, and are cheering and burning American flags. They are setting off firecrackers and fireworks. A tree caught on fire. They are of course protesting Trump and chanting, "No KKK, No Fascist USA, No Trump!" They have signs that say "Resist!" and "This is War!" The police asked them to leave, but they are sticking around, and the crowd is growing. They are cheering because they stopped Milo.

    A photo that appeared on Reddit last week of Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt wearing a pink “pussy hat” in the courtroom made the rounds on Twitter Monday. The knit cap, which recently made the cover of TIME, was conceived by two women in Los Angeles who envisioned “a sea of pink hats” at the Women’s March on Washington.

    ...Most important, in our complex federal system, where the policies of the national government depend on cooperation by state and local authorities, these local movements have the potential to block initiatives by the incoming Trump regime.... ... Now the protests will have to aim not at winning, but at halting or foiling initiatives that threaten harm—either by redistributing wealth to the very top (the Trump tax and energy plans), or by eliminating existing political rights (the cancellation of DACA, the Obama executive order that protected undocumented-immigrant children, known as Dreamers), or by jeopardizing established protections and benefits (the looming prospect...
  • Angry Farmer Sprays Poop all Over Protestors Trespassing on his Land

    01/30/2017 4:06:10 PM PST · by MtnClimber · 39 replies
    armers are generally some of the nicest people you will meet. Being from Alabama, I have many friends who own and operate their own farms, and I can tell you that one way to get even the nicest farmer fired up is to interfere with him getting his work done. Farms run on tight seasonal schedules where a single day of lost work can cost the farmer thousands of dollars in production. Needless to say, a bunch of protesters setting up on this farmers land certainly drew his ire, but as farmers are known to do, he comes up with...

    A play scheduled to open Saturday night in Chicago targets Barron Trump, the ten-year-old son of newly sworn in President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. The play, titled, “Barron Trump Up Past Bedtime”, stars comedian Shannon Noll as Barron and is set for the Revival Theater in Hyde Park, the neighborhood of Trump’s predecessor former President Barack Obama. Melania Trump will also be targeted in character on stage. But the main target, of course, is President Trump. After eight years of presidential children being off limits (to the point news articles about them disappeared after White House warnings), they...
  • They scream about Trump having nuclear codes, but the hawks of WWIII reside on the left

    Whatever their reasons, they seem to have abandoned their hippy-dippy heyday in favor of becoming the hawks of WWIII. How many times have you heard it? Some lefty gets up in front of a crowd and tearfully whinges about Trump having the nuclear codes. “He’s a child,” they say. “He’ll throw a nuclear tantrum,” they claim. “He’ll start WWIII,” they cry. This week, the ridiculous “Doomsday Clock” advanced.

    I love two genres of music, classical and classic rock. One of my favorite classic rock bands is the group Styx and one of my favorite songs of theirs is “Grand Illusion”. However, in the case of what we have seen post the 2016 presidential election through the inauguration of President Donald Trump, it appears the progressive socialist left is operating under a grand delusion. In 2009, the progressive left embarked upon an ideological agenda evidencing a serious delusion and disconnection with America. Instead of focusing on two simple issues, economic growth and national security, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy...

W, by Marxist crackpot Oliver Stone, was a Saturday Night Live skit with an all-star cast. The movie lost money and was quickly forgotten. The other, even more toxic production was Death of a President, released years earlier which fantasized about Bush’s assassination and remained a guilty pleasure for left-wing viewers. Obama departs with a very different industry farewell. Southside With You glamorizes his first date with Michelle. And Netflix...
